The Okbaby No Shock: Finally, A Crawling Helmet That Doesn't Make Your Kid Look Like An Overprotected Dork!

Haha, just kidding, it totally does! On the plus side, he looks like an overprotected, dorky equestrian.

Okbaby is, of course, the Italian firm that brought us the Colibri, the largest portable [sic] changing pad in the world--for moms.

update: so far the comments are unanimous: the No Shock is a straight up, kid-size version of the Hoth Rebel Soldier hat from Empire Strikes Back. Here's a screenshot.

If you added quilted earflaps for the sake of complete authenticity, as the members of the Rebel Legion -- Midwest Base would no doubt insist you must, I'll admit it's possible the No Shock could--could--circle so far past dorkiness it would arrive at coolness. Mod at your own risk.

Throw some goggles and earflaps on there and you have the cold-weather gear the Rebel Forces wore on Hoth... just in time for Halloween.

Exactly, that's a Rebel hat. Sweet.

This is funny we were just looking at the Thudguard in Parenting magazine yesterday and laughing at it. Granted my son tends to hit things with his forehead when falling and making a very big bruise.

Why not a full on Motocross helmet? Chin guard and all.
